Children in the Philippines Needing Our Support
2010 Update: With the help of The I AM Foundation’s Points of Light Donors, The Bookman in San Diego and Hay House, The I AM Foundation provided over 3,000 books to the children and adults in the Philippine’s.
From the President of the San Diego Classic Lions Club:
My name is Remy Deramos, President of the San Diego Classic Lions Club, a non-profit organization in California. My husband Manuel Deramos and I would like to ask for your help and support in donating I AM! Affirmation Books to our project to the Philippines. We are conducting an educational, nutritional, dental, vision and medical mission to the Philippines. We are leaving the US on January 6, 2010 and will start our mission on January 11, 2010.
We have been fundraising at Qualcomm Stadium and put that money into the fund for the shipping. We are there every Chargers game, concession #351.
Also, a part of this mission is to help the schools/students who are victims of the past four typhoons. We are bringing together the Philippino community to help with shipping clothes and blankets. Also, what we need are books and school supplies for the schools. The schools have been devastated, and in some provinces, the water is up to the roof.
Please let us help the less fortunate Filipinos who are still suffering from these calamities. The children need our help. I hope you can support us in this mission. We are scheduled to go to 5 provinces in the Philippines:
The areas that we are going to are the Laguna Province, Bayambang, the Pangasinan Province, Tabaco in the Albay Province (where the land slide is) and also to Manilla, the capital and Bataan, Olongapo, and the Zambales Province.
There are 13 of us traveling into Manilla from Los Angeles on January 6th 2010.
This mission is being sponsored by The San Diego Classic Lions Club based in National City, CA. We meet every 1st and 3rd Friday each month.
We want to reach 2,000-3,000 children on our mission. We are working with The I AM Foundation to gift as many Filipino children as possible with The I AM! Affirmation Book: Discovering the Value of Who You Are. For every $10.00 donated to The I AM Foundation, the San Diego Classic Lions Club will receive two of these books, which will change the lives of the children who receive them. They will know somebody in the world is thinking of them during this extremely difficult time in their lives.
Our deadline for shipping is December 15th, 2009. Please make your donation today so we can have the books shipped to the Philippines and ready for us to gift to the children when we get there.
For those who would like to make a contribution in the other areas of the campaign for shipping, medical, nutritional and educational supplies, please call Remy Deramos at The San Diego Classic Lions Club directly at 619.818.9322 or visit www.sandiegolions.org.
